CARLSBAD, Calif., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase program, authorizing the company to purchase up to $750 million of its common stock. This is in addition to the approximately $62 million remaining as of July 31, 2012 from the existing share repurchase authorization of $200 million approved in July of 2011.

"We remain committed to a balanced capital allocation program that includes returning a significant portion of our free cash flow annually to investors and using the remaining cash flow to support strategic opportunities in key franchises and expansion into new markets," said Gregory T. Lucier, chairman and chief executive officer of Life Technologies. "In 2012, we have already spent $335 million to repurchase shares and are committed to executing on this new authorization beginning in the second half of 2012."

The share repurchase program may use open market and/or private transactions. The timing of the purchases will be subject to management evaluation of current market conditions, applicable legal requirements and other factors.

The company intends to finance the share repurchase program through available cash and, if needed, its revolving credit facility.
